Daniel Worrall Relishing The Chance To Face Sri Lanka For Prime Minister's XI

February 15, 2017

Daniel Worrall is a bit of a throwback to the West Indies' golden era.

He is the Prime Minister's XI quick nicknamed "Frank" after the stylish ex-West Indies captain Frank Worrell, and he sports a bowling run up in the same vein as another Caribbean legend.

Worrall veers in from left field before every delivery, reminiscent of former West Indies fast bowler Malcolm Marshall - but the explanation for that one is simple.

He didn't model his run up on the Barbados great, rather it was something he had to do as a kid in the backyard to get some more pace on his deliveries.

"There was a tree in the backyard so if you wanted to get a run up you had to run around the tree," Worrall said.

Worrall has become accustomed to massive leaps in his cricketing career, which took him from eating a pack of mee goreng noodles for dinner every night to a rookie contract with South Australia in 2012-13.
